We also have performances by Surrey Mozart Players and a Founder’s Day performance, celebrating one of the world’s greatest virtuoso violinists. The concert honours the school’s inspirational founder, Yehudi Menuhin, on what would have been his 106th birthday, with a programme of music to be performed by alumna, current students, and staff.

The Summer Festival also includes a Chamber Showcase performance featuring Stravinsky’s infamous masterpiece in the composer’s own arrangement for two pianos, with YMS joining Director of Music Ashley Wass for an unforgettable performance as theatrical as the ballet itself.
